M. Misanthrope’s Rules on Writing #1, #11, #17, #68, #71

homeless-man-goes-onlineMore hard truths, lowly revelations and thick-skinned advice from the prolific and cantankerous M. Misanthrope.

#1 – It’s best to have your ‘inner critic’ be an asshole, not an optimist.

#11 – At all times, avoid the word ‘whoosh’ to describe movement.

#17 – If you come back to a manuscript that you abandoned long ago, make sure you bring a gun and put the poor thing out of its misery.

#68 – Don’t drink booze when you’re writing. When editing, you’re allowed to get shit-faced.

#71 – You’re only as good as your next book.
